Yes, I did pick spinach from my winter garden today!! Fresh picked spinach for BLTs!
Yes, I did plant carrots seeds in my back yard today on December 26 in Ohio! I hope my Winter Harvest book is right! The author plants carrots the last week of December at his commercial farm in Maine!
He then covers them in plastic. I will do that on Moday. We actually are in a warm pocket this weekend. It has been in the high 40s to 50s the last two days.
The variety recommended for December planting is Nelson Carrots.
I received more year round gardening books! I got Winter Harvest (by Eliot Coleman) last week. Yesterday I got Four Season Harvest (by Eliot Coleman). Also a little handbook on cold frames.
Combine these with the book of herb growing from my brother earlier this year and I should have a wonderfully productive and yummy garden soon!
